Throughout my interviews with elder adults, many seniors have told me they feel like a number, are discounted, or that they no longer matter in society. Whether you have an elderly loved one, care for the elderly, or interact with the elderly on occasion in your job, its important to evaluate your thoughts when you look at an old face.
Think about what thoughts and feelings arise for you when you see an older person. Please take time to watch this video and share. If it moves you, please comment on You Tube and share with friends, family and colleagues.
One day others will look into your old face. What do you want them to think?
“Behind the Old Face is part of a greater project to improve the treatment and care of the elderly. The video includes individuals who have been interviewed and are featured in the best selling book “Behind the Old Face: Aging in America and the Coming Elder Boom”.
